I’m happy to be back on schedule with new Waiting on Wednesday picks, after taking a break for the holidays. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is a fun way to share upcoming book releases that you’re excited about! This week my pick is:
Blackfin Sky by Kat Ellis. Release date: 2014 US (Running Press Kids). I can’t remember how I stumbled across this title, but I love the cover and the idea of a circus in the woods has me hooked. I believe this is the UK cover from Firefly Press, which means the US release date is probably late 2014. Nevertheless, it looks really good:
When Sky falls from Blackfin Pier and drowns on her sixteenth birthday, the whole town goes into mourning – until she shows up three months later like nothing happened.
Unravelling the mystery of those missing months takes Sky to the burned-out circus in the woods, where whispers of murder and kidnapping begin to reveal the town’s secrets. But Sky’s not the only one digging up the past – the old mime from the circus knows what happened to her, and he has more than one reason for keeping quiet about it.
Sounds good, right? I hope the US cover is just as good! I love the way the lightning goes right through the “I” in the word “fin.” What are you waiting on this week? Let me know!
